Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins finally have another colleague that isn’t Rex Grossman. The Redskins have signed quarterback former Texas standout, Colt McCoy, to a contract, expanding the depth chart to three quarterbacks. BREAKING: QB Colt McCoy (@ColtMcCoy) signs his contract at #Redskins Park. pic.twitter.com/7ah79sHCrl — Washington Redskins (@Redskins) April 3, 2014 McCoy was drafted in the third round of the 2010 draft by the Cleveland Browns, started for his first two seasons before he was relegated to backup quarterback. After three seasons with the Browns, McCoy moved out to San Francisco and was the 49ers backup for Colin Kaepernick. The move allows for continued speculation about Kirk Cousins’ status with the team. Now that another viable backup QB for RGIII is around, Cousins could potentially become trade bait. Often discussed and fiercely debated among fans and media outlets, Cousins could bring in a first round draft pick for the Redskins, as he has garnered interest and attention from teams impressed by his solid play and cool demeanor on the field. Whether Cousins will be ousted from D.C. in favor of McCoy or the two will spar in training camp for the coveted #2 slot behind Griffin is a question only time, and Jay Gruden, can answer.
